How to get a PlayStation 5 in time for Christmas
Last year, it was all but impossible to find a PS5 in your local big box store. It’s a bit easier in 2022, but your best bet for scoring a PlayStation 5 console is still going to be online.
To get a PS5 at Amazon, you don’t need to be online at a specific time or frantically smash the refresh button on your browser. Instead, Amazon has an invitation-based system — you click a button to tell Amazon you’re interested in buying a PS5 when it’s available, and the company will email you when it finally is. (Your new PS5 will be reserved for a short time.)
If you’re trying to maximize your odds of getting a PlayStation 5 console, we recommend keeping an eye out for a PS5 gaming bundle. Your odds of getting a PS5 increase with each invitation you request, so why not go through and request an invite for them all? You won’t be charged for a PlayStation 5 console until you actually buy one.
